I know everybody is *very* different in how they react to meds, but I was just wondering about how long most people take to adjust to narcotics when their meds are switched. I recently had to switch and to prevent similar tolerance issues I'll be doing a med rotation. I think it's a good idea, but I seem to lose *weeks* at a time tapering down off one med and then starting a new one and waiting for all the nausea/vomiting/sleepy yucky feeling to go away. Usually the first 3-4 days are the worst on the new med, but it seems like it does take me a few weeks to really settle into it. Is losing weeks at a time to med adjustments just part of what it means to manage chronic pain with meds long-term?? Any tips for making the transition time easier?
